University of Illinois Slammed with Censure Over Salaita Firing

In a decision that may have long-lasting repercussions for the university's reputation, a leading university group on Saturday voted to censure the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) for firing Professor Steven Salaita after he made comments critical of Israel's attack on Gaza last summer. The university rescinded Salaita's tenured faculty appointment at school's the American Indian studies program after he issued a series of Tweets condemning those who defended Israel's military actions against Palestinians in Gaza ... The school board's dismissal of Salaita received widespread condemnation by groups accusing the university of having a pro-Israel bias.

The history of Henry Mancini's Moon River

Most of the score of one of the 20th Century's most popular film tunes, Moon River, was never written down, but a painstaking restoration is about to make its debut in London. Moon River was made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, in which she played the part of New York socialite Holly Golightly. But Hepburn was not a trained singer and initially Paramount film-makers thought they would need to dub somebody else's voice. But the composer Henry Mancini persevered in composing something she could manage.

BLUE PRIVILEGE? COP ADMITS TO SHOOTING WIFE IN THE HEAD, RELEASED FROM JAIL IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS

At around 7:30 p.m. last Saturday evening, Aiken County Sheriff’s Deputy and former Marine, Matthew Blakley shot and killed his 24-year-old wife, Candace in their North Augusta home. Blakley admitted to having done it, but claimed it was an accident. Sunday afternoon—less than a day after the killing—Blakley was released on bond. The day after that, less than two days after admittedly shooting his wife to death, authorities declared that the deputy will NOT be charged with first or second-degree murder, but “involuntary manslaughter.”

Criminalizing Criticism: A Zionist Project

From the 1920s on into the 1990s, the Zionists controlled the storyline in the West on the Israel-Palestine conflict. This meant that their version of history was the only version as far as most of the people in the West were concerned. Consequentially, they had an uncontested media field to label the Palestinians and their supporters as "terrorists" - the charge of anti-Semitism was not yet widely used. Also, as a consequence of their monopoly, the Zionists did not bother to engage in public debate. Then, over the last twenty years the Zionists slowly lost their monopoly ... Besides the public outcry over anti-Semitism, the Zionists are working behind closed doors - the closed doors of American state and federal legislatures and university board rooms - where they do not have to face serious debate.

Campaign against EU ‘Link Tax’

A costly new EU ‘link tax’ could be on the way, threatening the future of popular websites including reddit and Google News. A similar Link Tax already exists in Germany, and in Spain, and is being considered in Austria right now. Tomorrow, the EU Parliament will vote on a draft report on the harmonization of copyright, prepared by German MEP Julia Reda.

This report includes a provision that would encourage the implementation of ancillary copyright for press publishers–a ‘link tax’ that requires aggregators and search engines to pay for snippets of text to link to news articles. The Save The Link network is calling upon MEPs on the Legal Affairs committee, in particular Vice-Chair Jean-Marie Cavada, to reject this proposal, and any others that would restrict the right to link, or implement fees simply for linking.

Or is the concern centered more on some strange notion that the government embarrassing bin Laden by revealing his wank-files will inspire acts of violence? Either way, this silly request from BroBible doesn't deserve such a silly response from the CIA.

Everyone's An Agent: UK Company Provides Spy Software To Teachers To Weed Out Child Terrorists

Never content to simply let America take a bad idea and run with it alone, these past few years have seen our friends in the UK slowly start to lose their collective minds concerning terrorism and radical Islam. It's hard to be too terribly snarky about it, considering here in America we've done our best to perfect overreacting to terrorism, but when the UK decided to institute something like Orwellian "thought crime," it was still worth noting how dumb of an idea it was. But our British friends weren't done. Now, schools throughout the country are being offered some very special software that will allow teachers to spy on student activities to try to weed out the eventually-maybe-might-be-radicalized.

Taking Note - The Editorial Page Editor's BlogIsrael’s Ludicrous Spoof of Western Journalists

If you don’t have a good story to tell, a tried and tested tactic is to lampoon the press.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry, which is bracing for a United Nations report on its conduct during last year’s war in Gaza, gave it a shot this week.

It was lame. It wasn’t funny. It was offensive.

The ministry released an animated video depicting a clueless, blonde, American-accented television journalist reporting idiotically from the Gaza Strip as Hamas militants lurked in the background. The spoof echoes a longstanding claim by the Israeli government: that Western journalists reporting from Gaza are often biased against Israel and refrain from criticizing Hamas, the militant group that runs the occupied territory.

Over the weekend, the Dutch media operation NRC published yet another Ed Snowden slide, showing how the NSA had infected 50,000 computer networks with malware. The only really new thing here is the number. We already knew the NSA's TAO (Tailored Access Operations) group was infecting computers around the globe using packet injection, via a system it calls "quantum injection", and that it's used these to install malware on key computers inside Belgacom, the Belgian telco giant. However, the latest report basically shows that the NSA has been able to compromise computers and networks in the same manner all around the globe:

US military jackals tearing Ukraine apart

The Ukrainian authorities are struggling to bring their armed forces in combat-ready status, while hoping to receive assistance from the West. US military instructors have arrived at a military base near Lviv. NATO is exporting weapons from Ukraine. Pravda.Ru discussed issues related to recent military activities in Ukraine with Vadim Fersovich, a military expert, journalist, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and a participant of combat actions in Afghanistan as part of the US Marine Corps.

"In Kiev, they believe that three hundred US commandoes, who arrived in Ukraine, are going to save the country like heroes. Why is that so?"

"In Ukraine, people tend to idealize the US Army. This army is best-trained of all western armies, but all programs to train foreign armies with the help of American instructors have proved to be unsuccessful. The problem here is about motivation. One can teach a soldier how to shoot, but soldiers must be motivated to go to war.

Veterans Urge Drone Operators to Refuse Orders to Fly

In a letter released today by KnowDrones.com, 44 former members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines whose ranks range from private to colonel and whose military service spans 60 years, “urge United States drone pilots, sensor operators and support teams to refuse to play any role in drone surveillance/ assassination missions. These missions profoundly violate domestic and international laws intended to protect individuals’ rights to life, privacy and due process.”

Abbas says Palestinian govt to resign within 24 hours - reports

The Palestinian government is to be dissolved within 24 hours, AFP reports, quoting a statement made by President Mahmoud Abbas. The government's spokesman, however, denies any such discussion of dissolution.

"Within 24 hours the Palestinian government will resign," Abbas told members of the Revolutionary Council of his Fatah movement in Ramallah, AFP reports, citing several officials present at the meeting.

The reason for the resignation is the government's inability to act in the Gaza strip, AFP reported earlier in the day citing senior officials with the Palestinian Authority.

“This one [government] is weak and there is no chance that Hamas will allow it to work in Gaza,” said Amin Maqbul, secretary general of the ruling Fatah movement's Revolutionary Council, according to AFP.

What the $#*&?! Arlington, Virginia Fining People $250 a Pop for Cussing

The arguments about what kind of nation that might make us these days in the eyes of your grandma are, frankly, irrelevant.

The Constitution wasn’t written because the founding fathers were concerned first and foremost that our freedoms might offend some little old lady. In fact, the Bill of Rights was written down on paper because they knew full well that the information therein was probably going to piss someone off, but they wanted to make sure people knew we have been endowed with certain unalienable rights and exactly what those rights are.

The First Amendment is, among other things, about not abridging free speech.

Tossing out fines at $250 a pop for saying cuss words (and widening the definition of what those even are, a huge slippery slope grab to even more power in chilling free speech) is definitely an abridgment.

A Horrible Socialist Movie! The Tomorrowland Lie

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Disney plunked down a reported $190 million for this turkey, and promotion/distribution bring the investment to an estimated $330 million in costs. Total Box Office to date is under $90 million following a "fast burn" opening which has already faded (last week the film grossed only $3.5 million, which means the word is out and people are not buying tickets). This propaganda-piece may be on track to join the ranks of Hollywood's biggest flops like Howard the Duck, Ishtar, and Heaven's Gate!

As an interesting side note, in looking at the "reviews" posted at rottentomatoes.com, it is obvious many of the "just plan folks" are actually hired public relations writers trying to boost the film's tomato-score.

In a 78-21 vote, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle supported a new prohibition on "enhanced interrogation" practices and other novel detention methods.

“We must continue to insist that the methods we employ in this fight for peace and freedom must always, always, be as right and honorable as the goals and ideals we fight for,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), chairman of the Armed Services Committee and an author of the amendment.

Ukraine Says It May Freeze Debt Payments to Fund Slaughter in Donbass

This should put to rest any notion that Ukraine is using its money for social uplift. Via AFP:

Ukraine’s premier warned Friday that Kiev would freeze its debt repayments if no immediate deal was found with private lenders because it had to fund its escalating campaign against pro-Russian fighters.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on his return from a crunch visit to Washington that the International Monetary Fund had given his embattled government a few weeks’ reprieve to enact laws needed for the release of new loans.

But the Western-backed cabinet leader said the Fund had signalized its willingness to let Ukraine restructure debts at its own pace – and that interest payments to Western commercial lenders and Russia may stop as early as next week.

“Today, Ukraine spends as much on foreign and domestic debt servicing as it does on defence,” Yatsenyuk told a government meeting.

Kids Are Paying the Price for Yemen’s War

Hisham Yahya, 13, is an eager student. As we sat in the large, empty yard of his school in Sanaa, Yemen’s capital, with weapons debris scattered about, he said he missed going to class. “I just sit at home, it is so boring, and we have no electricity, nothing,” he said. “I want to go back to school so I can start learning again.”

It doesn’t look like Hisham’s school will be up and running again any time soon.

On March 26, the first day of airstrikes by a Saudi-led international coalition against the Houthi rebels who control the capital and much of the rest of the country, Yemen’s education ministry suspended all classes in Sanaa. Many other areas subject to coalition attacks and fighting between the Houthis and other armed groups soon followed suit. Across Yemen, 3,600 schools – 76 percent of the country’s total – have closed due to insecurity, according to the United Nations. As a result, about 1.85 million children cannot take this year’s final exams.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This proxy war, lead by Saudi Arabia, has been an unmitigated disaster, and those in the US and Saudi leadership appear to want to punish to death those who threw out their US-sponsored leader, Al-Hadi, and replace him with a government which is more to their liking.

The airstrikes have killed scores of civilians to date, including women, kids, and the medically fragile elderly. Where is the morality here?!?

Apparently, nowhere to be found in this wretched little war.

This would not be happening if Yemen were not on the Saudi border.

CIA DIRECTOR BRENNAN DENOUNCED BY PROFS AT HIS ALMA MATER OVER TORTURE SCANDAL

A cohort of faculty at Fordham University dedicated to opposing torture have vehemently denounced CIA Director John Brennan for defending enhanced interrogation techniques used in the wake of Sept. 11 and have pledged to continue their criticisms of Brennan in the coming school year.

Brennan, an alumnus of Fordham who in 1977 earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at the private Jesuit university in New York, was also given an honorary degree by the college in 2012 when he was commencement speaker there.

At the time, his address received some protest, with one graduate launching a Change.org petition calling for Brennan’s removal as speaker, and roughly 10 to 15 audience members turning their backs to Brennan during his talk, according to the Fordham Ram campus newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Go.......FORDHAM!! At last, we have some people in academia beginning to oppose what has been going on for so many years in the Federal government.

I hope these people are an inspiration to others who want to peacefully protest the utter immorality of torture, and work together to remove it completely from whatever intelligence tactics American military are using.

“Saudi Arabia without us is gone. They’re gone.”

“I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will make Mexico pay for that wall.”
